If you have not heard about Winter Storm Jonas hitting the US, you must have been hiding under a rock (which was covered in snow anyways). For some this meant that they had to stay at home and cancel plans. But for others, who planned ahead, this was a great opportunity to break out the time lapse gear and shoot a once in a lifetime movie as about 65 centimeters of snow covered the city.

While I am not envious of the people having to endure that amount of snow in such a short time, I think that those time lapses show how much gear that only 15 years ago was considered super advanced, has become common for everyone.

The first timelapse comes from youtuber ryanmcell (Purcellville, VA), who simply put his GoPro by the window capturing both his grill and his furniture being covered with snow. Actually, at a certain point, the window itself was covered with snow.

A great movie by Wayne Bennett shows a compilation of about 800 photos with an interval of 2 minutes covering a man-high skeleton.

Phillip Bloom took a it to the high end using a Sony A7SII with a Sigma 20mm ART

Todd Hayward shot over 3,000 photos in Virginia with his GoPro Hero 4 covering about 24 hours

Shlomo Nosson Rotberg placed a camera on his basement window, shooting the street. Sadly, by the time he was done, all the cars were almost fully covered with snow

Paul Armstrong has wonderfully composed over 24 hours of snow in

    One of them might have shown potential had it not suffered from VVS. As for the rest of them, the lazy assed lot should not have even bothered. Review the following clip and then tell me you couldn’t possibly have done better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RK75eQ3mMxg

    Seriously, there is a lot more beauty in this world than your driveway or your patio furniture. Seek it out next time.

    You keep using that word “blizzard”, but it doesn’t mean what you apparently think it means. A timelapse of a blizzard would be all white, because a blizzard is characterized by large amounts of snow (which we see in these videos) and strong sustained winds (which we don’t see). In a blizzard, you can’t see much beyond the end of your nose.

    Great videos though.

    Very cool! I also made one from my house in Elkridge, MD. I made mine a little more stylized.
